Do you play with watercolor pencils much?? Hop over to the Document Life Workshop blog to see what the rest of the creative team did with today’s challenge!
I’ve been doing scrapbook layouts for my projects as part of the Document Life Workshop creative team, but for today’s challenge, which is to use “Just Words” I decided to play around in my art journal.
I started by coating my page in gesso (to make the thin paper a bit stronger.) and then I doodled the flowers with water color pencils. Which I love! You can draw instead of paint, but then just add water and it looks like you’ve painted them! After I had my background I added my journaling. I wrote things I love about spring!
The latest challenge for the Document Life Workshop blog is to use a tutorial! You know, those tutorials that you’ve been pinning but haven’t actually tried?
I followed this tutorial on how to make your own washi tape flags. I used red and blue washi tape to go with my nautical theme and I think my flags turned out pretty awesome. 😉
I love washi tape. L-o-v-e it.
You can see the 3 different handmade washi tape embellishments I posted a DIY for on the Document Life Workshop blog here.
I’ve made Washi Tape cards.
I covered my pencils in Washi Tape here.
I even have a whole pinterest board for washi tape ideas.
If you’ve seen a tutorial you really want to try, Do it! and then share it on the Document Life Workshop Follow a Tutorial challenge!
Today’s challenge on the Document Life Workshop blog is to use a document on a layout. My parents and I walked the Cowtown 5k in Ft. Worth back in February and I’ve been saving my race number to use in a layout, so I’m using it as my “document”.
Today I’m over on the Document Life Workshop blog sharing how I made 3 different embellishments from washi tape! In the post I show you how I create a washi tape feather, a tag, and a medallion. They’re all super easy to make!!
Today’s Document Life Workshop challenge is all about food. Head over to the blog and see the rest of the projects! Here’s a little about this challenge from the Document Life Workshop blog:
If you live to be 70, you’ll have spent about six years, ten months of your life eating. That’s a big chunk of your life! A chunk that certainly deserves a spot in your documentation process. And if you are what you eat, that’s even more reason to include your food: you’re including a piece of yourself as well!
I took a slightly different approach to this challenge. Instead of food, I scrapbooked about my love for tea. I drink a lot of tea, I love it. I grabbed my washi tape stash for the layout.
Todays challenge on the Document Life Workshop blog is to be inspired by your stash. For this layout, I was inspired by these journaling cards by Echo Park. I love how they are in a grid and I tried to replicate that look onto my page. 🙂 Check out the challenge here!
A couple of the journaling cards you see on my layout (the LOVE and …That Happened) are from the Document Life Workshop store, you can get them here.
